Should Broward Democratic Chairman Mitch Ceaser consider a run for Supervisor of Elections?

In 2014, the Broward Supervisor of Elections (SOE) office was again the epicenter of controversy and ineptitude during the election cycle.  The elections office was a model of inefficiency in how ballots were decimated, candidate qualifying was handled and elections were conducted. The current SOE, Dr. Brenda Snipes has failed to work effectively with the County […]

Miami is emerging as the “new” New York for international media

Miami and the greater South Florida area have long benefited from geography and climate. In recent years, Miami has emerged as a truly global destination and one of the most recognizable American cities abroad. While the area’s reputation isn’t always pristine domestically or even in the state of Florida, internationally the image of the area […]

Florida Democrats at a crossroads – Broward County and the FDP

Democrats from Broward County like to believe they are the ones that matter most – the ones that win the state for Democrats.

Monday Musings: Reggie Fullwood, Broward Bond Issue, Coral Springs Mayor’s Race, #Fangate, Debate Topics and 2014 is not 2002

House District 13 will not be seeing an election on November 4th. Representative Reggie Fullwood failed complete his paperwork properly and thus, no candidate filed for the seat. A judge ruled that Fullwood could not appear on the November election, triggering a special election. However, Fullwood’s easy re-election is out the window – he now […]

District 2 the latest fiasco for poorly run Broward SOE

I have  lots of gripes with the Broward Supervisor of Elections office. Unlike her counterparts in Palm Beach, Orange, Hillsborough, Leon and Miami-Dade, Broward SOE Dr. Brenda Snipes has done little to educate voters about upcoming elections and to make voting more accessible to the masses. Broward County is the best performing Democratic urban county […]
